Causes of Medical Malpractice

Our skilled Pittsburgh medical malpractice attorneys at Ogg, Murphy & Perkosky, have helped many people who have sustained injuries as a result of improper care or treatment by medical providers. Professionals and institutions such as physicians, nurses, hospitals, psychologists, nursing homes, x-ray technicians or other medical professionals can be careless or negligent. This carelessness or negligence of medical professionals, usually called medical malpractice, can take the form of:

  • medication errors such as dispensing the incorrect medicine or incorrect dosage
  • improper reading of x-rays
  • blood transfusion errors
  • the misdiagnosis of a life-threatening condition
  • surgery on the wrong limb
  • errors during surgery
  • infections related to treatment
  • birth injury or trauma resulting in cerebral palsy or other conditions
  • preventable suicide
  • restraint-related injuries
  • burns, falls and pressure ulcers

The consequences of such carelessness or negligence can be catastrophic, even deadly. We understand that it may be impossible to restore the damage and loss completely in these situations, but we work hard to obtain the compensation you deserve under the law. Contact a skilled medical malpractice attorney Ogg, Murphy & Perkosky. There is no fee for an initial consultation.

Medical Malpractice Fee Structure

We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your medical malpractice claim and charge these types of cases on a contingency fee basis. Many people do not have the money to hire a medical malpractice lawyer to protect their rights. You probably did not have this unexpected injury figured into your budget. Now you have high medical bills, lost wages, and many other financial worries caused by this situation. We believe it is unfair for these obstacles to prevent you from obtaining the full amount of compensation you are due under the law.

That's the reason we cover all expenses until the end of a case. We then are paid a portion of the funds recovered. If we are unable to recover compensation for you, you do not owe us attorneys’ fees. This is called a “contingency fee” arrangement and is common practice among attorneys who handle injury cases.

Attorneys put up large sums of money on these complex cases in order to hire experts, take depositions, gather evidence and oppose the lawyers of large insurance firms. The Pennsylvania medical malpractice attorney you choose should be able to cover the expenses for such battles. Not only does Ogg, Murphy & Perkosky have the resources, we have the experience, skill and dedication to resolve your case successfully.
